BASIN MIXERS

A basin mixer refers to a spout that combines hot and cold water through one spout.


But with such a large range of mixers available these days, it could be quite confusing having to choose between electronic mixers, basin mixers,  concealed mixers, extended basin mixers just to name a few!


Let’s start! There are a few options when deciding on your bathroom basin mixers.

 

EXTENDED BASIN MIXERS

The extended basin mixer is a sophisticated design choice. This hot and cold mixer will transform your basin look from classic to contemporary. The extended height of this product makes it extremely practical.


The wide range of styles and finishes gives you the freedom to plan your dream bathroom. With finishes ranging from chrome, brushed nickel, matt black to graphite you are spoiled for choice. If you would like to make a statement, the extended basin mixer would be a great choice.
 

 

STANDARD BASIN MIXERS

Although the name suggests that this basin mixer is standard, it is important to make sure that there is adequate space from the top of your countertop basin to where the spout exits.

Always check the dimensions of the tap you are buying, as well as the area that you are fitting it in. With choices from brushed nickel, chrome, matt black, antique brass, and brass, you are spoiled for choice.

The style of taps should reflect your overall bathroom design. Contemporary, classic, modern, eclectic, or traditional to name just a few. 
 

WALL TYPE BASIN MIXER

If you want your bathroom design to stand out from the crowd, then wall-mounted mixers will give you that exclusivity. If you are designing your bathroom on a tight budget, adding wall-mounted mixers can add a luxury feel to your bathroom at an affordable price. Wall-mounted basin mixers look stunning when coupled with countertop basins.

If you have a modern/contemporary bathroom in mind, or a sleek, modern, and minimalist look you are after, or you are still opting for the traditional look, wall-type basin mixers can add to that look you are after.
 


BATH MIXERS

It is a question of what comes first? The bath or the taps? Do we need to fit the bath mixer with the bath, or do we need to fit the bath with the mixer?


If you do decide to select bath mixers, your plumber would like to address this issue first. These mixers need to be installed in the wall and therefore a lot of planning needs to be done by the plumber. In order for you to choose your taps/mixer, you need to select your bath first. The type and style of the bath will determine what taps or mixer you can choose. 


If you have decided on a quick reno project and you don’t want to rip out your old bath or walls, the best option is to select one of the many exposed or freestanding bath mixers to add a fresh new look to your existing bathroom. These mixer systems will make your bathroom both visually striking and transform your bathtub into a feel-good spa. 

 

EXPOSED BATH MIXERS

With so many choices these days in the style of bath mixers there will most definitely be one that fits your budget as well as your bathroom style. If you prefer sleek and streamlined, or curvy classic, with or without a hand shower, there is one that fits your style.  

The handles too can vary, from traditional rotating handles to levers that are lifted up and down to control the flow. Your plumber will give you advice on the water pressure, something to consider when choosing your bath mixer. Mixer taps can be yet more versatile if you add a shower mixer allowing you to switch between flow from the taps and a shower attachment.

This can be hand-held or mounted to make a shower bath, and is particularly useful where there is no room for a separate bath and shower enclosure. 
 


FREESTANDING BATH MIXERS

If you have the space for it, a freestanding bath mixer is a beautiful compliment to a bathtub and can by styled with modern or traditional sanitaryware and accessories. 


It is the ultimate statement piece for your bathroom, and the best thing is that they don’t have to cost a fortune either. 


These mixers are specially made with a freestanding bath in mind. These taps are not attached to anything, therefore giving a lot of flexibility in where you can place it, like the bath.

 

However, you are still going to have to extend the plumbing work to fit into the tap if you want it somewhere different than the plumbing already serves. The plumber can assist you here in deciding where the best place is to install the mixer.


If you do decide on the freestanding bath mixer, you will end up with a stunning-looking tap that compliments an already magnificent bath.
 


SHOWER MIXERS

There are two different types of people when it comes to taking a shower. Those that see it purely as functional and do what needs to be done as quickly as possible, and those that lavish in the experience, indulging in a few extra minutes under the steam. 


Whichever type you may be, you’ll want to make sure yours is the best it can be. Switching to or upgrading your shower mixer is one way you can transform your shower experience. Say goodbye to weak, trickling water flows and bursts of scalding hot or freezing cold water when someone uses the downstairs tap. 


A shower mixer is a valve that draws from both your hot and cold water supplies and mixes them so that you can control the temperature of your shower. You can conveniently set the water volume and temperature via a lever or two separate handles. 


To create a consistent overall look in your bathroom, you can also get matching taps and mixers for your washbasin, bath, and bidet.

 

THERMOSTATIC SHOWER MIXERS

If you are the one that loves to lavish in the shower experience, indulging in a few extra minutes under the steam, then you should consider a thermostatic shower.

 

A thermostatic shower mixer offers three key benefits:

 

Safety, convenience, and economy


•    Safety – Your pre-selected water temperature remains constant for the duration of your shower, so there’s no risk of scalding from a sudden temperature increase and no nasty surprising shocks should the temperature plummet.


•    Convenience – Our thermostatic mixers will maintain your pre-selected water temperature, leaving you to relax and enjoy your shower. Should you wish to stop the water, the thermostat will automatically find the exact same temperature when you re-start the flow. 


•    Economy – Install a thermostatic mixer and you can save water and energy too.  


You have a choice of an exposed mixer, that offers elegant design and ease of installation. Concealed, they merge seamlessly with any bathroom décor. Both offer ecologically conscious water consumption and luxurious customization options. 


Most thermostatic mixers enable the control of multiple spray outlets, providing an ideally personalized shower experience.


Available in an array of forms, styles, and finishes, thermostat mixers offer an elegant, space-saving solution. Inconspicuous, intuitive controls offer ideal efficiency. Water volume control, temperature calibration, and comfort at the touch of a button. 

 

Our wide range of shower mixers produced by high-quality brands such as Splashworks, Hansgrohe, Grohe, Cachet, Duravit, Cobra, Franke, Bagnodesign, and many more are available in finishes such as chrome, brushed black, matt white, black/chrome just to name a few.
